Hi Alan,

The Fortran compiler is actually part of GCC 8 rather than GCC 4.
There is a native RISC OS version of GCC 8 now (autobuilder/develop/gcc),
so perhaps we could look at doing a release of that. It produces a
skeleton !SharedLibs with just the new runtime libraries and this is
merged into to the GCC 4 !SharedLibs (so not standalone).
The two !GCCs would need to be kept separate though I think,
I've not looked at how to run two different versions of the
compiler from the same !GCC.
